Subject: RE: Origins: Pendle, oh Pendle / Old Pendle
I've never heard 'Old Pendle' sung so far as I remember. The insert with Songs of a Changing World credits both words and music (for 'The Rosemary', that is) to Dodds. The tune as sung by Jon Raven is very generic and I wouldn't be surprised to find others turning up very like to it; perhaps even predating both songs.
